that there are situations going on right now between syria and lebanon, particularly hezbollah, that are quite disturbing to israel. over the past few years they have information that says that syria has been handing over, transferring, if you will, scud missiles. the significance of scud missiles is that they can carry chemical weapons warheads. there is a lot seems to be going on behind the scenes, but indeed a u.s. official says they can confirm there was an israeli air strike on the syrian/lebanon border. israel is not commenting on that information right now. >> okay, sara sidner, when you get more information on the strike, on the syrian/lebanon border, we'll bring you back up. sara sidner, my thanks to you from israel. we'll be right back. so...how'd it go? well, dad, i spent my childhood living with monks learning the art of dealmaking. you've mastered monkey-style kung fu? no. priceline is different now. you don't even have to bid. master hahn taught you all that? oh, and he says to say (translated from cantonese) "you still owe him five bucks." your accent needs a little work. i've got a nice l
hezbollah could get their hands on them. the building where the trucks were loading or departing was hit. hezbollah is a sworn enemy of israel. if hezbollah had gotten those missiles it would have significantly increased their capability in any future conflict with israel. this was not israel getting involved in the conflict in syria, per se. it was very much israel making a preemptive strike to protect itself. martha raddatz, abc news, washington. >> i think that's important because early reports sort of were, were suggesting that perhaps i had real was getting involved in the inner workings of the syrian war. that, now we know, is not necessarily the case. >> nobody wants to touch that. but in terms of getting too deeply involved. even the u.s. has been very kind of wary about how deeply they're going to get involved in this. the real issue, if assad loses control and those weapons he has get into the wrong hand that's when the situation turns much more grave, much more serious, potentially volatile and that could be the turning point that would draw the u.s. more deeply into syria if

a shipment of weapons to the anti-israel militant group hezbollah in neighboring lebanon. the vice premier of israel warned if there's any signs that seeria was losing its grip on chemical weapons there would be military air strikes. no reports that there were chemical weapons in this strike, the associated press saying it's anti-aircraft missiles. the first time israel has fired into syria since 2007. definitely represents an escalation of the situation there. syria, of course, in the midst of a raging civil war. back to you. >> thanks, michelle. our next guest has analysis of america's fiscal situation and the takeaway is this. despite our debt fast approaching $17 trillion, spending cuts will actually make matters worse. >> and the reason is it's getting so much attention is that john makin, a noted conservative economist, and is a resident scholar at the american enterprise institute. also with us is lindsey piegsa, an economist at ftn financial, and she sees things a little bit differently. john, we'll go to you first because the headline there is you mean to tell me a conservative ec
